Almond and Orange Florentines

Lynne Rossetto Kasper’s Splendid Table is one of our favorite radio programs. And Yotam Ottolenghi is one of our favorite chefs. So when we found this recipe by Mr. Ottolenghi, on Ms. Kasper’s website, we had to make it. These are flipping easy – very few ingredients and very few steps. If you need a cookie that wows, and you need it now, this is the cookie for you.

No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie Mounds

You probably remember these no-bake chocolate oatmeal cookies from childhood. You’d come in from playing outside and your friend’s mom had them on the counter. Or you’d bring them as your cookie contribution to your Girl Scouts meeting. These cookies are as pleasing as they are simple to make.

Peppermint Meringues with White Chocolate Chips

These peppermint meringue cookies from Sunset Magazine looked so cheerful (and free of flour and butter) that we thought we’d give them a try. We’d never made meringue before and were a little curious how they’d turn out, but they were super straightforward!

Sugar Cookies Filled With Dried Fruits and Nuts

Before we got our KitchenAid mixer, we really didn’t bake that much. Now, we’re baking up dangerously high levels of cookies, thanks in part to the addicting ease with which we can mix any old thing. These cookies turned out super cool looking, plus very very good. This is another recipe from Sunset magazine’s December issue, by the way, and was runner-up in their cookie making contest. We wholeheartedly endorse this recipe!
